Strong Communities

We are committed to enhancing the communities where we operate by sharing our time, research and resources and amplifying the healthcare objectives of our partners. Giving back to our communities is ingrained in who we are and we align our community investment efforts to those of our tenants.

International days

Vital acknowledges and celebrates a variety of International Days.

In 2023, the theme for World Health Day was “Health For All”. In alignment with this, all Australia and New Zealand offices participating in an organised lunch with nourishing and wholesome foods. To honour the theme we made donations to food banks in our office locations.

The New Zealand team participated in Pink Shirt Day, a campaign to stop bullying and promote kindness and inclusiveness.

A new addition this year saw the New Zealand office come together in celebration and exploration of Matariki, a time to gather with whānau and friends to reflect on the past and plan for the future. We used a Māori owned and operated food provider for our session.

Northwest supports five key international days including

  • International Women’s Day
  • World Health Day
  • Earth Day
  • World Mental Health Day
  • Human Rights Day
  • The Gut Foundation

    To further public education and awareness of gut disease and prevention, Vital will sponsor The Gut Foundation event: Gut Feelings – A Healthy Mind Takes Guts! An interactive event held in Auckland to present findings from foundation funded research projects and educational initiatives. The Vital offices across both New Zealand and Australia participated in a Gut Health Workplace session run by a representative of The Gut Foundation. The focus of the session was sharing information and resources on bowel cancer and disease with recommendations for daily improvements and knowing options regarding disease screening.

  • Volunteering

    During 2022 Northwest launched an employee volunteer programme by providing two days per year of paid time off to further support the communities we serve. We are committed to this policy at a corporate level and are also endorsing of office involvement in group volunteering events across the year.

    Disaster Relief

    Throughout the past 12 months, Australia and New Zealand have seen significant natural disaster leading to devastation in a number of communities. To support these regions we have provided donations through Red Cross to facilitate disaster relief and providing aid to those most in need.
